I took Helu in my dynasty league last year 6th overall. That was before I learned to stay away from Shannahan running backs.

Lovely. Don't you have to play to get turf toe? lol

Ya can get it in practice.

I know. He's been my biggest frustration. Not his fault but I drafted him early and often. Was gonna be my big surprise this year. Guess who got the surprise? lol

And for now, Shanahan has made the good call. Morris looks good, but I still think after last year, Helu should have been the starter. I know he was hurt preseason but look at the game he had in the last preseason game.

Knew I should of stayed away. Seemed like a steal when I got him now someone could steal him off me and I wouldn't care. Hard to drop though... Getting to the end of the rope

unless Morris gets hurt, he is out. i think Royster has a better chance to replace Morris if he gets hurt, even if Helu did not have turf toe. Turf toe is one of those F-ed up injuries that will leave him sitting on the bench for a good minute.

i heard a lot of people complain that Shanny was screwing up and the job belongs to Helu for whatever reason but Morris showed great skills from the jump so i went after him in later rounds knowing that the vast majority of owners just had no clue about him. people and press give shanny a bad rap on RB's but history shows that the guy knows his RB's and knows how to get the most out of them. he has produced more 1000 yard rushers over the years than most other coaches.
